In the winter, the mountains are ski and snowboard central, and in summer the mountains become a delight for hikers, mountain bikers, and rock-climbers. Whistler is going to be the co-host city for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games as it pairs up with its neighbour Vancouver to host. When travelling in Whistler there are so many cool tours for you to take part in on the mountain. You can do glacier walks, where you travel in groups trekking up the mountain, or glacier safaris in SUVs. One of the most breathtaking and exhilarating experiences you can have in the world is going on Whistler's zip lines. They have amazing trips through old forestry on steel zip lines or you can go on a very fast ride down the mountain in a harness on a steel zip line.
In the summer and winter, there are many ATV tours that allow you to drive the ATV on the tour through the mountain. You could peruse the Alexander Falls, which are located deep in the Callaghan Valley. One of the most popular trips and tours for visitors are the guided fishing tours up into the mountain.
